Title: Encrypted backup password
Post by: brononius on February 16, 2018, 07:35:23 pm
opnsense was taking every day nicely a backup to gdrive.

But of course, when I now need to recover it, it's not possible to restore it.
Because the backup was encrypted. And I don't know the password.

Is there any way to recover it? I found an old backup, so i've now restored a backup of about 1 year ago. In here you can 'see' the password with wildcards. No idea if there's a way to recover it that way?

I'm not using encrypted config backup files, but NO, you cannot recover the password. Or at least, it shouldn't be possible: it will break the whole idea of encrypted backup files.

Recent backups are available under option 13 on the console. These are independent of the Google drive backup.
